Which looks unprofessional, bulgy, and "like your pockets are full of stuff".
Jeans aren't appropriate working clothes - not for a magician anyway.
depends where and who you perform for
, and no I can have my pockets full and you would think it's empty...
No it really doesn't. If you're going to "work" (the subject of the thread) you need to look like you're working, not like you're hanging out.
As for your pockets looking empty, I seriously doubt that. Unless of course your jeans are REALLY baggy, in which case they are even less appropriate. Denim shows item outlines as well as any other fabric.
also depends on color of jeans, I always wear black which actually looks formal.
Black jeans are jeans none the less. A different color isn't a loophole.
Frankly, black jeans are counterproductive. If you're wearing blue jeans you can pass it as "smart casual", if you're wearing black jeans, you look like you're "trying to look formal" - which is far worse.
I have seen “smart casual” which is Jeans, dress shoes, dress shirt and jacket. That is how I dress when I go out and I am not performing. However, Jeff McBride told me something which I totally agree with, “If you dress casual, you will only be a casual magician.”
McBride has really become the magic version of Confusious hasn't he. Anyway, it's good advice.
